Needed repair; bad experience

T. FINN "T Finn", Amazon

  • Summary: After 9 months, the buttons on the camera stopped functioning. Contacted Sanyo and was referred to their Service Provider, Skokie TV. Contacted Skokie and shipped my camera to them in early September.

Sold It

LeGrow "Donna LeGrow", Amazon

  • Summary: After owning the HD2 for 6 months I sold it on eBay. This is a tweener device - trying to be both a video camera and a digital still camera. I thought I was getting the best of both, but really the HD2 isn't great at either.

Low Battery Time

  • Summary: A good camcorder for outdoor use. However, a full charged battery lasts only about 22 minutes for a continuous recording. You'd better get at least two backup batteries.

Not what is advertised

Jeremy W "Tech Geek", Amazon
15 December 2007
  • Summary: I ordered the Sanyo VPC HD2, clearly described as an SD camecorder, including the correct picture. What arrived was a still camera. I contacted the merchant through Amazon's communication system.

Bad compromise

  • Summary: I expected the video to be so-so and the pictures to be excellent. Both were miserable.

Horrid! Don't waste your money, just get an HD1000!

  • Summary: To preface this lambasting, in all fairness, this camera -IS- quite adept at SD (Standard Definition). But the HD settings look like SD resized to 1440 pixels across. That's not HD in MY book, nor should it be advertised as such.

So so... I wish the external microphone was decent

J. D. Shockley, Amazon
27 November 2007
  • Summary: Pros: -Very easy to work with, editable and small mpeg4 files. Great for posting stuff on the internet. Avid or FCP users don't need to capture footage from dv tapes; they just need to import the quicktime files, which is faster.

Disappointing.

Cameron Liner, Amazon
12 November 2007
  • Summary: I previously owned a Samsung Mini-DV camera which is about 4 years old. The poor thing died after many trips to the beach and so forth so I was faced with replacing it. I figured I would "get with the times" and look for a tapeless model.

Great things come in small packages

A. Abrams "Vermonter", Amazon
3 November 2007
  • Summary: I own a high end 3 CCD HD video camcorder, but, in our plans to travel abroad at the end of this year, transporting a large HD camcorder is not in the plan and I wanted an all-in-one for both stills and video rather then bring both a still and video digital camera.

Great Little Camcorder

ariemay, Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: This is the perfect camera for our outdoor activities. Awesome picture! Don't bother if you want to use it inside though, it needs a lot of light to really give you the best picture.
